With the new season of The Dancing With The Stars on ABC right around the corner, the stars are gearing up and starting rehearsals. Recently, three time mirror ball champion, Derek Hough dished on his partner and the new season, which he feels will have a very high standard of talent. Read on for more from Derek!
Dancing With The Stars pro, and three time mirror ball trophy champion, Derek Hough is excited about the new season – could he be hoping to grab a fourth win? He very well could be, as he gushed to Good Day L.A. about his partner, Maria Menounos: “Maria, she’s already such a hard worker. Her work ethic is insane. Last night we went like 6 hours, and she was like, ‘I want to keep going,’ and I was like, ‘I don’t think my feet can keep going.’” We all know that is quite the compliment coming from Derek, who is such a hard worker himself.
While Derek Hough is certainly thrilled with the hard work that his partner is putting in, winning may not be an easy task this season, as Derek feels there is a lot of tough competition. Derek added: “From what I’ve heard, with this cast, everybody’s gonna be good…I’ve snuck in a few rehearsals and kind of peaked my head in, and from what I’ve seen, the standard is very high this season.”
It will certainly be an interesting season on Dancing With The Stars! Which celebrity/pro couple are you rooting for? Comment and share your thoughts with us below!
